We have pulled together our Citizenship Essentials to help Citizenship subject leaders and teachers plan or update their Citizenship curriculum provision.
Below are links to key ACT resources, some of which are free for the public to access and some of which can be accessed through association membership. This selection will help Citizenship subject leaders and teachers plan and update their Citizenship provision.
'The Prevent Duty and Controversial Issues: creating a curriculum response through Citizenship' is a new publication that offers guidance to schools and teachers as they consider and develop their response to the Prevent Duty.
ACT has created three resources to support Financial education within Citizenship, especially in Key Stage 3. This work was undertaken in collaboration with IfS University College in 2014 and the materials were given to teachers at the 2014 ACT National Conference and subsequently refined following commentary. There are three member-only resources:
This resources digest has been put together by the Expert Group for Citizenship.
The Expert Group for Citizenship comprises teachers and others from the subject community and works together to promote best practice in teaching the revised National Curriculum. The Group is supported by the DFE.
The booklet 'Assessing Citizenship' was developed with teachers by the former organisation the QCA to support effective assessment practice in Citizenship. The booklet was produced in 2006 before level descriptions were created for the subject.
It can be very challenging to explain to colleagues and others what Citizenship is all about. In fact some head teachers and subject colleagues still believe that Citizenship was axed in the curriculum review. It was not. Citizenship is part of the KS3 and 4 national curriculum and the GCSE remains, as does the A Level. In order to help with clarity, ACT has produced some new style posters that can be downloaded and displayed in the classroom or staff room or used at governors meetings.
